. but listen to this. the democratic budget calls for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next 10 years. how are you going to grow an economy with that? and every working american is going to pay some of those taxes. let me ask you, let me ask you this. are you already not paying taxes through the roof? i am. property tax, sales tax, gas tax, state tax, city of new york tax, federal income tax, and almost everything i do in my leash time, rental cars, hotels, planes, all taxed as well. and the democrats want to add another trillion dollars in taxes? so we're quickly becoming sweden which has the highest tax rate in europe. u.s. corporate tax is already the highest in the world, already. and there is no doubt president obama wants to raise them even further. so, again, is this a sound economic policy? is this going to grow the economy in the u.s.a.? is it? finally, the president and the democratic party have failed to tell the american people exactly what programs they will cut in the future, if anymore. once again, there is no specific entitlement reform put forth by the president. this is r

.ing a move that has -- considering a move with major implications all over the world. officials want to tax a percentage of every individual savings account and they would reach in the account and take the money. as you can imagine, the reaction has been fierce. senior foreign affairs correspondent greg greg palkot has the story tonight from london. >> the mediterranean island nation of cyprus is small but it rocks the global markets, including the u.s. because it's going to do the unthinkable. fund a near bankrupt government. at least the solution we went for is for sure not the one we would have liked. but under the circumstances, it was the least painful one. >> exchange for a bail-out from the european union and imf, cyprus wants a so-called tax of around 10% on account of $130,000 and over and 7% for the rest. exposure to invest in the greece and lax banking regulations are to blame. attracting foreign investors including russians. brussels and germany are seen by cypriates as the villain. >> we don't want germany here. we don't want them to help them at all. >> all of this is causing
in this -- in this town when what he's doing is redefining terms. so, he's redefining tax reform not the traditional word of tax reform, meaning you lower rates and use that to close loopholes to lower rates. he wants to use it to say, well, we're going to close loopholes to pay for more spending. >> congressman tom price and why no budget. what was his explanation, why he has no budget. the senate has a budget and the house has a budget. >> again, he had a very difficult time answering that question. >> what did he say? >> i mean, it was like, look, you've listened to him. he's got no substantive answer when tom price-- >> what did he say, i'm too busy or they're working on it? >> look, it's going to come and avoiding eye contact, a couple of weeks. well, it's late already and he was challenged in the meeting, are you presenting this late on a rope-a-dope effort after we passed the budget that paul ryan is leading us on? it's all of those sorts of things and here this was a big attempt to try and bring people together. i thought, look, our members respect the presidency and we're respectful of him in th
years and will not raise taxes. how does he accomplish this? he doesn't spend what we don't have. here is how the congressman explained it earlier today. >> this budget cuts spending by 4.6 trillion dollars offer the next ten years. historically we've paid a little less than 1/5 of our income to the federal government, but the government has spent a lot more. we match revenues with expenditures, so the budget matches the spending with income just like every family and business must do throughout america. >> sean: to help us reach this balanced budget in ten years, congressman ryan lays out four major issue we as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline to generate almost 140,000 jobs. second, health care, first and foremost the budget repeals obamacare and strengthsens the medicare system for future generations. third, welfare reform, changes made in 1996 by extended reforms to other programs. gives states flexibility so they can tailor programs like medicaid and
and expanding medicaid in garden state. virginia's bob mcdonald who raised taxes to pay for overdue transportation projects in his state. cpac officials make no apologies for not inviting christie or mcdonald saying they hope that next year they will deserve an invitation to cpac 2014. one other thing, bret. the night before last in my report on the federal employees delinquent in their taxes, i talked about an i.r.s. report saying one in ten treasury department officials were delinquent on the taxes. it's 1 in 100. apologies to treasury and i don't want the i.r.s. mad at me. >> bret: thank you. president obama met again today with the harshest critics. congressional republicans. this time, the president got together with g.o.p. senators. while the budget is the focus, a relatively small issue in dollars continues to loom large. correspondent shannon bream is at the white house. >> the administration fired back, criticism regarding the cancellation of white house tours. coming from a source not normally viewed as a critic. the editorial board of the "washington post." equated the de

's so many obligations so many new taxes associated with it. it's incredibly expense simple. it was supposed to lower the cost. it has raised the cost of the premiums for average family, and in the neighborhood of $5,000. this is a disaster. and the real question is, will anybody have the honesty to own up to the fact this is a disaster and saying can we start over again and do this in a reasonable way and get the voices of people who actually know something about how to save money involved? everybody agrees that healthcare reform is necessary. but it needs to be done the right way. neil neil do you think it's too late for that? that this sort of medical ship has sailed and despite all the problems, i don't see the administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead
to include tax expenditures, a large part of our federal expenditures in the tax code. and the military also needs to be part of deficit reduction. we also need to do this in a select way. these across-the-board sequestration cuts are not how we as well govern. we should be specific as to which programs are priority programs and which programs can be cut. i think that's where we are trying to find common ground between the democrats and republicans. there are discussions taking place among my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to try to find that common area of agreement. >> shannon: we all as americans wish you the best. i want to give you a chance to respond to criticism from jeff sessions. he says the senate budget, proposed and voted on by the committee is full of gimmicks and raises taxes by $1 trillion and increases spending and has no plan and makes no claim to ever balance the budget? >> well, the democratic budget from the senate -- it has more deficit reduction than the simpson-bowles proposal that we all thought was the right framework, just 2 years ago, so i think it is seriou
-increases debt, raises taxes and never balances. the top republican for budgetary issues blasted the democratic plan. >> now we know why senator reid did not want to bring up a budget. the plan from the democratic leadership is a failed plan for america. it does not alter the debt course of america, has no growth component to it. it spends more and taxes more. reporter: but these budget resolutions only require a simple majority so there are enough democrats to pass the democrats' budget resolution without republican votes needed. and so there you have republicans in the senate, all they can do is bash the plan. they cannot actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our econo
what they've released with the budget so far, trillion dollars in new taxes and won't balance in the ten year window and may in fact never balance and also, even though there's a trillion dollars in tax increases, it's not going to fundamentally reform the mandatory programs, social security, medicare that are going bankrupt. so, you know, i'm waiting to see it. and we will have our chance to weigh in on it. we will have amendments to it, and certainly, we'll present our vision, which will be bringing us to balance in ten years like the house is going to do. >> greta: when you mention balance, president obama talked with george stephanopoulos, abc, my goal is not to chase a balanced budget for the sake of balance. >> i guess chasing a balanced budget for the sake of balance is not -- chase ago balanced budget because first of all, it makes sense, it's good for economic growth and getting jobs created in this country. if we continue to run the trillion dollar deficits each year, it hurts our economic growth, but also, i'm the mother of two children. what are we doing? what are
cut the deficit $1.8 trillion half through spending cuts and half through tax hikes. senator corker, let me start with you will senate republicans accept a tax increase if you get serious entitlement reform and cuts? >> i think senate republicans and all republicans want to see a 75 year solution to entitlements and i think republicans are joined in wanting to see tax reform so to the extent that generates revenues and how that is scored obviously that will be debated as we move ahead but i think all of us understand the real issues driving the deficit is in our o country are the entitlements. we want to see these available for generations to come. >> chris: but real quickly you you understand the price for entitlement reform in any deal would be a tax increase. would you buy that and what do you think are the prospects there willle be a deal sometime before this summer? >> well, again, i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months i think that we will know when the preside

to raise taxes in virginia in order to deal with transportation problems. it's also worth noting that people are noting the absence of those two, and the presence of people like mitt romney who has said he's never going to run again, and a lot of republicans think he has admitted ran a campaign with some flaws along the donald trump and sarah palin raises questions about the absence of mcdonnell and chris christie. there will be a straw poll here. it doesn't mean a heck of a lot other than republicans are already keeping score. and one more thing, jon. yesterday when we were talking about deliberate irs taxes, i said one in ten were delinquent, it's actually one in a hundred. i don't want the irs angry at me. so made a mistake and cleaned it up. jon: all right. one in one hundred, and as you said, we'll see who shows up to the next cattle call for conservatives. carl cameron, thank you. jenna: well, an outpouring of reaction to the newly-elected leader of the catholic church. pope francis planning an inaugural mass in the sistine chapel. he told a crowd of some 100,000 people in

.85 trillion, half through spending cuts and half through tax hikes. the republican plan, paul ryan plan, would cut the deficit $4.6 trillion in ten years and includes repealing obamacare. the hope going through the legislative process they might be able to find compromise to strike some sort of deal. >> we need to put americans back to work. that's our first priority. deficit reduction i would put as the second priority and one that is coupled with economic growth the so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: bottom line, bill, american people are seeing this over and over again. republicans and democrats fighting on both sides of the aisle and perhaps, they can come together for a grand bargain but just doesn't appear to be the case right now. as they grapple with the budget, keep in mind that two weeks away they have to come up with a continuing resolution by march 27. bill: as ryan says, at least there is baseline for comparison between the two sides. we'll get into that in just a moment here. thank you, kelly wright on the
before from republicans. is that true? >> largely true but there is one huge difference. that is the tax increases that have already gone into effect on january the 1st. paul ryan budget accepts the increases. it does not attempt to change them. in other words he is not rehashing the whole fiscal cliff debate. he is accepting that, yes, we've got these higher tax rates in place. we all keep them. that's a huge difference from where he was before the election. martha: he includes tax cuts, tax hikes, i should say but doesn't include obamacare. he would like to see that go. >> he wants that out of here. >> stuart, thank you very much. bill: you've been waiting 1400 days and finally we got a budget. so now we know. martha: it is exciting. takes less time to pick a pope. put it that way. at least we think so. bill: in the modern day. martha: exactly. bill: in "america's newsroom" the new polling shows public view since the election. is the honeymoon over? some numbers tell a very interesting story on that topic. martha: this one is not going away, folks. the fight whether or not you can brin
spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so much money that's already been cut. if we had the obama law, things were cut there. ryan knows it, because he took out the savings we had in the president's bill. even though he's against the bill, somehow he found it that the cutting of savings. >> you're saying what she wants to do is fine with you, even though it effectively calls for more spending, more taxing, and doesn't address these issues? >> i don't
this week showing a wide gap, indeed, remains over spending and taxes. plans on the table both sides are taking to the airwaves to try to make their cases. peter doocy is live in washington. peter, does it look like either side is ready to give any ground? >> reporter: it depends on which interview you with a watched this morning, john boehner told abc news president obama already got the new taxes he wanted back in january so more taxes shouldn't even be on the table this time around, but another remember can bob corker indicated on fox that new taxes could be part of the discussion if democrats agree to serious entitlement reform. >> think republicans, if they true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues. that doesn't mean increasing rates. it means closing loop homes and arranging our tax system so we have economic growth. i think we've been saying that from day one. >> reporter: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the
, in the ryan budget takes the taxes and repealing obamacare. what is happening is the complete integrity of our financial system is being called into question. we have the fed printing day and night to provide the monetary support for these fiscal policies, and to hear republicans say, the speaker of the house say, this is not an immediate debt crisis. what the hell does one look like? >> neil: makes you examine, were they trying to say -- calm people down into thinking we're not going to followed like this hour or this day. but by saying not immediate, and agreeing with the president, they give him a negotiating edge. the president says this isn't really like a right-now threat. up to now they've been saying this is a right-now threat. >> i don't think boehner believes it is. i think he has been around a long time. the think he has participated in this for a long time. i don't think he would use this as a crisis, and it is a crisis. paul ryan was on my program over a year ago, and he said we have two years. well, that's over a year ago, so i guess we have about ten months, and i'm surprised at

a balanced approach, combining tax hikes and spending cuts. both sides say they're far from a long-term deal, notwithstanding what the media is calling the president's charm offensive. mike, what are the president and his allies saying about possible budget? >> we're told by a source that president obama told senate republicans, quote, our task is to find common ground, and send a signal that business is on the move. we're told the president expressed interest in new tax revenue and also tax reform. as for senate democrats, their leaders are blasting the proposal that house republicans put forward on the budget, and author paul ryan. >> this budget was roundly defeated last november. i can imagine why they don't get a new dance step here. so until they get off this ryan republican march madness, all this magic he tried to do, we can't work together. if we're going to pass a budget. >> the house speaker, john boehner, the other key leader here on capitol hill, put a marker down saying, no more tax hikes, and no more gimics. >> but republicans reading the details of the democrats' budget say,
crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget is a good idea. maybe somebody who does is the former chair of the president's council on american advisors. from the university offing should school of business. uses one of those washington calculators. how are you doing? >> great to see you. i thought you would describe the thank you note you were about to write to the president for cutting government at a faster rate since world war ii. >> 6 trillion in debt. you're using to giving your students quizes and tests, right? >> here we go. >> this is the hannity intellectual contest, and we'll see our good of a political spin artist you are. close friends with barack obama -- >> i'm shocked he wasn't elected pope. here's point number one. this week wore talking about the president talking about balancing the budget, and we'll listen to candidate obama. >> i know where this is going. >> what is important to recognize is that we've already cut $2.7 trillion out of the deficit. if the sequester st
of control debt, out of control taxes, out of control regulation, that's the only other period. president reagan came in facing that stagnation and he implemented policies the exact opposite of barak obama. in fact, it's interesting. 79 to 83, economic growth was 0.8%. today it's 0.8%. for the exact same period. because obama didn't learn the lesson from reagan that if you want to turn the economy around, you cut taxes, you reduce spending, you reduce the debt and don't send regulators like locusts to destroy small businesses and jobs.

[applause] and the humanitarian part of the program, the carson scholars fund is every bit as important as the academic part. because you see, we are the a humanitarian nation and historically we have been. many people don't know this, but socialism started as a reaction to measured america because people in europe looked at us and said, wait a minute, look at those americans. you've got people like ford, and kellogg and vanderbilt, rockefeller, carnegie, mellen, they've got so much money and look at everybody else who's got nothing and you can't run a system like that, you have to have an overarching government that receives the funds and redistributes it in a fair and equitiable way, have you heard that before? what they didn't realize is that all those names that i just said, instead of, like the land barons of europe hoarding the money and passing it down from generation to generation, instead they built the infrastructure of this nation, they put in the trans contine
of this rescue are much different than the other ones. their bank deposits will be taxed. if you have over 100,000 euros in the bank 9.9 percent levy. less than, 6 and three quarters percent. many nervous people tapped out the atm. a lot of russians have money in cyprus. it is up for a parliamentary vote this afternoon. it can be changed and amended to penalize the smaller for less. the good news is markets in cyprus are closed today for holiday. futures are reacting very negative. >> that's scary the government. nabbing your money like that. people at the office notice younger people can be i am mature. >> appearance punkality and honesty all matter in the workplace. a survey of 400 human resources say a third of the highers aren't professional. 40 percent say they lack work ethic. 52 percent new hires have this heir of entitlement. might be they are more confident. they might have been coddleed by their parents. in this tight job market there's a lot of ways you can turn your passion into your job. many of the candidates might be saying i am too good for this job. >> they need the job to mak
of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come up with a plan be after the parliament levied a tax of up to 10% on anyone who had any bank deposits. now the question is whether they going to do. this is important for us and of course, that can affect our 401k. but that dow average just hit a record high. greg is following the story from london. reporter: that's right, folks today are scrambling to come up with a new way from dragging all of your done with it. they voted down a plan that would see big bites taken out of private bank accounts. again, there has to be a way to get this country out of the way. one way to do it is lax banking regulations. moscow has a stake in all this. officials are reportedly looking for a big loan. back in, with strings like energy and getting rights for the people. the banks are worrying that people. we are told that it could be closed until some kind of deal is done. atms are working. you can get about $1300 out of it and atm each and every everyday. but the hitch is that the atm's run out of money by about 7:30 a.m. so you have to get there early.
